Did you type in your name incorrectly when you created your Sim? Do you have pesky numbers attached to the end of your name after a city merge? Have you joined a family and want to add the surname to yours? Are you tired of your current name and want something new? If you have answered yes to any of these questions then Sim Name Change is just for you. Read on to learn how to change your Sim name.

Changing Your Name

Changing your Sim name is a very simple process, and can be done from the Select a Sim screen. Clicking on the name you wish to change will connect you to the city and bring up a box that allows you to enter a new name. When entering a new name, it must be unique and follow the same guidelines as when creating a new Sim.

Click to Change Name

Once you have entered your new name and click the check box, it will be sent to the server to test if it is unique. If not, you will be asked to enter another name. If it is, you will be taken back to the Select a Sim screen and your new name will appear over the Sim.

Name Already In Use

If you are worried about your friends finding you under your new name, there is no need to worry. All bookmarks and relationship web links will be updated to show your new name instantly. The only restriction placed upon the avatar name change program is that you can only change the name of your Sim once every 7 days.
